For CBE Retirees

Additional information for those who have or will receive retroactive salary increase due to recent ratification of collective agreements.

If you are expecting a retroactive salary increase for a period when you were an active employee, you must contact your former employer to initiate the process. Your employer must withhold pension contributions in order for the additional salary to impact your pension benefit amount. After Vestcor receives the retroactive contributions, your pension benefit will be recalculated, and you will receive a retroactive lump sum payment for additional benefit payable since your retirement. Please note that with the large volume of retroactive salary increases being processed at this time, your pension recalculation could take several months to complete.
